Homo Erectus is much older than Neanderthals, and Homo Sapiens Sapiens (Modern Humans) may be a descendant of Erectus, or at least we count them in our family tree. Neanderthals are regarded as a distinctly separate species, although some cross breeding took place between Neanderthals and Modern Humans (we weren't around back when Erectus was). They are distinct species, if you go back far enough you would eventually find a common ancestor.
